Poulton Cottage is a sweet and simple cottage 100m from the beach, an easy 1 hour drive from the Melbourne CBD. It is a low maintenance, child and pet friendly, simple and relaxing place to stay.

The space
Did you go on family beach holidays when you were a kid? This is probably the type of house you stayed in back then (although with a new bathroom - some things you just have to have!). It's family friendly and hassle free, not to mention 100m to the beach and even closer to the shops and is an easy 1 hour drive on East Link and Peninsula Link from the Melbourne CBD. It is our much loved holiday house and is in a seriously brilliant location.

If you look at the photos you'll see the floor looks pretty terrible - but not any more! They've all been sanded and polished and look brilliant.

There are 3 bedrooms inside the house (one with a double bed, one with two singles and one with a bunk and one single) and then an outside bungalow which adjoins the house, which sleeps 2 in a bunk and one in a sofa bed. The bungalow is great for kids - perhaps not so good for adults. There is a desk out there as well as a second flat-screen TV, bean bags, games and books. There is also a portacot and high chair available. This house is perfect for 2 families with a bunch of kids. Bookings for 9 adults or bookings for buck's nights or boys' weekends away (even with fewer people) will be declined - sorry :)

The bathroom has been recently renovated and has a walk-in shower and easy care flooring (can't see that sand!) The second toilet is outside in the outhouse.

The family who owns this house (that's us!) uses it regularly and you are welcome to use any left-over items such as our coffee, tea, sauces etc in the cupboards and use all the games and books as well. Please note that there are some of our own items that remain in this house.

There is a very large back yard (perfect for backyard cricket), an outside shower, laundry and bathroom, and a playground around the corner about 50-100m away. The shopping centre is also about 100m away with an excellent supermarket and take-away restaurants including fish and chips, pizza, Indian food and an ice-cream shop. If the need should arise, there is both a Doctor's surgery and a Vet around the corner, around 50m away.

There is also a fantastic board-walk about 5 minutes walk away where you can burn off a few calories while your dog meet lots of other canine friends. The beach is around 100m away and is safe and sheltered. There is kayak rental on the beach to add to the fun!

As this is a holiday house you will need to bring your own linen (sheets, towels etc) but Jan (my lovely cleaner) can provide these for you for $15 per person. Just let me know when you book.

Check in is at 2pm, and check out at 10am. We can give you early check in or late check out depending on other bookings.

Guest access
The whole house and the huge garden are all yours for the duration of your stay.

Other things to note
Pets are welcome. The yard is completely enclosed although please note escape artists might be able to make their way out through the garden! We have made every effort to make it impenetrable but can't offer any guarantees.

Mount Martha, Victoria, Australia

Our cottage is around 150m to one of the best bay beaches in the world. It is around 100m to a number of great shops and cafes as well as a playground and the boardwalk.
The Briars is at the end of our road (but it's a bit of a hike) which is 230 hectares of beautiful fauna and flora with a lovely homestead, walking trails, an astronomy centre and lots of holiday programmes including one for Junior Rangers.
Mornington and its beautiful markets is around 15 minutes drive away. Redhill is even closer (less than 15 minutes away) and is renowned for its excellent wineries. An easy 25 minute drive on the Mornington Peninsula Freeway and you're at the Peninsula Hot Springs. Come and see why we love this area so much!

I'm a mum of three, who loves the beach and welcoming guests to my family's old holiday house. I love the simple life with clean air and walks on the beach, hot cinnamon scrolls straight out of my oven, sewing and reading and drinking really good coffee. I'm happy spending a day by myself but love a good party every now and then. There's nothing much better than camping in hot weather, apart from skiing in winter!

During your stay
Jan my lovely cleaner lives round the corner and is available should any issues arise. You will have her mobile number. The owner (me, Anni) is always available at the end of the phone for any help or guidance too though I'm an hour away so less able to help at short notice.
